News travels fast. One of our blog subscribers, Joy, recently sent me a link to a new blog that’s just a few months old, Fourth Generation Inclusive. I’ve already found a couple of things involving Native heritage to repost and I will in the upcoming weeks.
As you know, many people who carried Native ancestry, especially if they were mixed, were lumped in with mulatto and sometimes, simply listed as colored or negro, especially if there were only two choices and those choices were white and “something other.” The would always have been the ”something else.”
The Native Heritage project is only listing individuals who we find documented as Native, in some way or other, including designations such as mustee, but Lisa Y. Henderson includes a lot more in her very interesting historical blog about North Carolina’s free people of color.
Anyway, I hope you’ll subscribe and enjoy. I have. Great job Lisa and keep up the good work!!!
